The PlayStation Recap – New and Improved Edition

81 12

Welcome to the remastered, revamped, rejuvenated PlayStation Recap! Rather than overwhelm you with a list of all of the 30+ PlayStation.Blog posts we publish each week, I’ll be collecting the 10 most-read stories. The result — hopefully — is a more relevant Recap that’s a little easier on the eyes. Be sure to let me know what you think in the comments!

This week was a return to normalcy after the creative chaos that was E3 2011. We published a host of E3 Replay posts that collected the best of our E3 livestream segments for posterity. We also published some fascinating new details on the upcoming PlayStation Move update for LittleBigPlanet 2; announced a new Killzone 3 map pack called From the Ashes hitting PSN this Tuesday; shared a behind-the-scenes account of what led Red Johnson’s Chronicles developer Lexis Numérique from PC game development to PSN; revealed winners of the Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One skin design contest; and provided a first glimpse of 2012 PS3 shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines.

  • you should put naruto shippuden ultimate ninja heroes 3 the full game on playstation store for $20.00 so people can buy it thanks and please

  • Hey Sid how did you like Super 8?

    I watched it twice and found it really mint and full of adventure. Wish my childhood was like that aha.

  • My favorite was probably a toss up between Vita and Uncharted 3, very happy with Vita’s lineup of games and the price point although the AT&T thing is a big BLEH!! Uncharted 3 looks amazing as I’m sure we all expected and can’t wait for that to come out.

  • resistance 3, twisted metal 3, starhawk and battlefield 3 FTW

  • i have a question, about the new game media, what if you have the UMD,but only have PS vita, will it be like i can go to gamestop, and they will exchange the same game in the new game media or what? PLZ ANSWER!

    BUT I STILL LOVE THE PS VITA, THE BEST THING THATS GANNA COME OUT! well, if it can beat the comming halo 4 (WICH I HATE!).

    Sony, VITA question: Can this device be made to work like everyone discusses in my idea “NGP as a touch-screen remote for PS3″? I’d really like to be able to use it as a rifle scope, a blu-ray remote, a game inventory controller, a mapper, a keyboard, a message center, and more.

    oh and could it be possible to play youtube on it. that would be a BIG HIT!!!

  • PLZ ANSWER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ive been asking the same questoin for 2 WHOL WEEKS!!!

  • I’m playing: InFamous 2, Socom 4, Motorstorm, Mortal Kombat, MvsC3, Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade, KillZone 3, Lbp 2, ModNation Racers, GTA4 : LEoLC, Black Ops ( Im on maternity leave for two weeks :p)

    I’m watching: E3 Replays , G4TV, Battle : LA, Hall Pass, Jack Ass 3.5 and True Grit
